great mexica food – very clean, the food was very flavorful and served hot. service was excellent
good food!! – I found this place last week and it was very good!! Try it and you will like it.
ahhh-mazin!! – K, so i have only been there three times... and i am absolutely in love with la cocina!!! and especially since i have this thing for cheese. And trust me... if you have a cheese feddish like me... they will satisy your cheesey needs!!! and their beans..... oh my!! They are heaven!! And the salsa and chips you get as an appetizer... wow. those are amazing! Let me just put it this way... i LOVE la cocina and it deserves way more than just five stars!! :DD
Spent my whole life here – I can't even remember when I started coming here. When I was like four years old or something. Back then I didn't appreciate it: got a basic plate of cheese enchiladas or a tostada.
No no no!! You like crunchy tacos? This is THE place for crunchy tacos. (I assure you, I've plundered this city for anything better.)
Get two beef tacos. Make sure you say SHREDDED beef. And then tell them you want them OLD-FASHIONED style. Got that? Two shredded beef, old-fashion style tacos. You'll pay a dollar extra for each taco. But, come on, trust me for once in your life.
Definitely my favorite mexican restaurant – I have eaten here at least 10 times in the past 3 years and I absolutely love it. Everything tastes awesome with huge portions and good prices. The Carne Asada Fajita Burrito plate is my favorite; two huge burritos stuffed with the best tasting steak, onions and peppers, on a big platter with beans and rice all covered with melted cheese and whatever else for just about 11 bucks. They also have great chips and salsa, for FREE unlike many mexican restaurants these days.
Plate is hot!!!! – My friends absolutely love this restaurant. I have been about 7 or 8 times. You get seated right away and usually order right away, too but the food takes a little while to come to the table. If you are in a hurry, go somewhere else. They have a cheap or maybe even free margarita night. The plates arrive burning hot which is a huge bonus. I got a chicken taco once and it had cartilage or something in it so I only get cheese enchiladas now. The cheese is so hot and meltey you have to wait a few minutes or burn your tongue. I think the beans have a funny taste to them but no one else seems to notice, so I guess its just me. The fact that the food is so steaming hot and fresh overrides that. You get red and green salsa with the chips. Prices are reasonable for a sit down/waitress kind of establishment. The place has a crowded/high energy feel so its a good place to take friends.
Solid tradition of HARDCORE AWESOME – I've been going to this place since I was a kid, and have loved it every time I've been there. I have never been to a resteraunt that has been so consistantly superior. Somewhat recently though, they've added televisions in each corner or the place, usually playing ball games and beer commercials. It subtracts from the otherwise calm environment and attracts a few more of the roudy college jock type, but the food has allways hit just the spot it needs to.
I would take anyone that enjoys mexican food here.
Yum Yum – My family and I have been going to La Cocina for a few years now and we've always enjoyed the food and service there. They've recently remodled, and it looks great, the food seems a little quicker lately and just as wonderful.
